West End magic shows
Magic Goes Wrong
Performed as part of Mischief Theatre’s 12 month residency at the Vaudeville Theatre, sees the company don their top hat and tails at Magic Goes Wrong. Set at a charity event, it’s the aim of the magicians to raise as much money as possible by performing the biggest, boldest magic tricks. But in true Mischief Theatre style, not everything goes according to plan and as their tricks spiral out of control, so does the target amount! With the play written in collaboration with American magicians Penn & Teller, see if the performers will be able to muster up the courage to perform incredible stunts at Magic Goes Wrong. You’ll want to pull these tickets out of the hat before they disappear in a cloud of smoke!
Machine de Cirque
Performing as part of the London International Mime Festival, five daredevil acrobats take to the skies in Machine de Cirque. Trying to survive a set that seems to be going out of its way to hurt them, nothing stays still for long in this high-energy show. Firecrackers explode, sandbags drop from the flies, walls shift and move and nothing stays still for long.
